Jakarta Adventure (Part 2/3: In and around)

As I arrived very late into Jakarta, thanks to the delay at Amsterdam, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta airports, there's nothing much to do except to get a quick bite in DJournal Grand Indonesia.. BFF was waiting for me at the arrival hall with his driver.. I am amazed that most have drivers or they drive.. And there's always a drivers' waiting area or something that dedicates to the drivers..

Well, supper consist of fries and chicken wings and I quite like the lemongrass tea which is refreshingly cooling.. Then we called it a day..

The next morning, we headed for brunch in Social House or Soho for short.. It is owned by Ismaya Group on the first floor of East Mall.. the restaurant has a bar on one side and it's so big it's not possible to fit everything into 1 picture, so I didn't bother..

"Never work before breakfast. If you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first"
A fine selection of breakfast options.. 

"If you're happy, you eat. If you're sad, you eat. You lose a job, you eat. You get a job, you eat. It's, you know, it's addiction".
DAMN RIGHT.
EAT EAT EAT!!

Homemade Grandma Ice Lemon Tea with Ice-cream.. can be lime/vanilla/lemon.. can't tell..

After gym, we went for a foot massage.. apart from the annoying ticking clock, I'd say it's quite good.. almost fell asleep if not for the hot stone they place under my neck which is a bit far too hot to be comfortable..



After massage, BFF treated me to dinner at Cacaote Senopati.. I super like the decor.. very victorian, princessy and queen diva-ish!!! It's a patisserie, almost fine dining restaurant..
